Fraud and Theft Charges in Ontario
Fraud and theft charges range from minor accusations to serious allegations that can result in fines, jail time or both. For example, the following charges are all considered theft or fraud:
Theft from a retailer is typically a minor charge. However, if the theft involved price tag switches or other complex schemes, it may qualify as fraud under the law.
Fraud offences include pyramid schemes, counterfeiting, and embezzling from an employer. They can all have serious consequences.
Theft from an employer, whether of materials or intellectual property, falls under breach of trust. The courts take breach of trust cases very seriously, and a conviction could result in a jail sentence.
A record of theft or fraud can affect your employment, family, and social status. Securing qualified representation is often the only way to prevent serious, lasting consequences after you have been accused of theft or fraud.
